There are many short-term opportunities available in Adelaide.

If you want to get a taste of life studying abroad, you could come to Adelaide for a semester, a year, or even during your summer break.

In some cases, your study in Australia may count towards the course you’re studying at home. Taking a short-term study program in Adelaide will enrich your education and give an international edge to your qualification.


Student Exchange

When you come to Adelaide as part of an approved student exchange, you’re still enrolled in your course back home, while spending a semester or a year studying in a similar course in Adelaide.

Usually, your studies in Australia will count towards your qualification back home, but you should check this with your university. While you won’t pay tuition to your Adelaide university, you’ll still need to pay for your living costs, travel, visa, health cover and study materials.

Study Abroad

If your home university doesn’t have a formal student exchange program in place, you can still apply for short-term study in Adelaide through a study abroad program.

If you’re a high-school graduate or enrolled in a university or college at home and you have good academic results, you might be eligible. You’ll need to ask your home university if you can get course credit for any study abroad programs you’re planning on taking.

With study abroad, you usually need to take time off from your course back home, and you’ll need to pay for your Australian tuition fees upfront. You’ll also need to pay for your living costs, travel, visa, health cover and study materials.
